A warm and welcoming place to stay. Despite his wife being in hospital at the time, nothing was too much trouble for Koos, our host. We enjoyed our stay very much. Only small negative point was, we felt the bed was a bit small for couples and we are not large people!

I am glad that Koos took such good care of you while I was in hospital and that you weren't inconvenienced by the sudden disruption in our lives. Our Restio suite has a standard double bed, but next time you come to stay book the Protea suite which has a kingsize, extra-length bed. More

My girlfriend and I had a perfect one night stay at Wonderlings. The building is the owners own house (carefully designed by an architect: you'll love the details!) with an independent floor for guests: you really get your privacy. Jenny and Koos genuinely care about your confort and make you feel good and relaxed like you want to in South... More

Top ratings for the host's friendliness and the spot in general close to one of the most beautiful beaches in SA, also for an excellent breakfast on the balcony with view to the False Bay and the birds enjoying the surrounding finbos. The only real downside of this thoughtfully and tastefully furnished appartment is the R44 that runs behind and... More

We had a fabulous stay. Fantastic views and a very nice room. The drive along the coast is one of the best anywhere. The nice thing is, when you get there, you can get the drive experience again on the way back. And the penguins at Betty's Bay is something to experience.

Beautiful view and breakfast (according to your exact order) is served in the room. This was five star. The traffic on the road behind the house is somewhat disturbing, but the view makes up for this!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review us. Most of the time Wonderlings is considered quiet and peaceful, as you will gather from other guests who have stayed. But as we approach our peak summer season at the coast, the traffic does increase. . . C'est la vie! More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wonderlings B&B is located in the quiet village of Rooi Els on the eastern edge of False Bay. We are positioned on the Cape Whale Route and in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom. You will stay in a luxury suite, sandwiched between the sea and the mountains. The village is a registered Conservancy in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve and so, apart from 1300 plant species, guests share their lives with the rich fauna that moves through the fence-free area. These include baboon, antelope, otters, hyrax, leopards, porcupines, genets, hares and 160 bird species. Activities include swimming, diving, birding, cycling, climbing and hiking, with numerous marked trails in the area. Wonderful drives, wine routes and golf courses are in the close vicinity. ... more   less
